Directors of education have been warned their schools face legal action if they fail to honour a deal to ensure teachers are given adequate time to prepare for lessons.

Mary Bousted, general secretary of the Association of Teachers & Lecturers, said her union would help members challenge any failure to allocate 10 per cent of their working time for planning, preparation and assessment.

Many councils have drawn up action plans for headteachers when the law comes into force in September, but as many as one-fifth of teachers are uncertain they will get the time, according to the association.

Ms Bousted said: 'Where there's a deliberate and steadfast refusal to implement this, we'll do everything possible to enforce the law.'
